My work, by building on new and old technologies, examines how optical illusions can be created and perceived within glass. Pieces explore theories of optical perception, in connection with the binocular recognition of depth and space, and kinetic clues to distance, in addition to light and inference within personal schemata.

I completed my PhD research in 2021 and am now building on this research to create a new body of work which explore optical perception further.
In addition to my sculptural work I am currently working on two annual bespoke corporate award commissions, preparing information for teaching at Bild-Werk Franeau, Germany next Summer, and writing a paper to present at the GAS Conference 2024, in Berlin.
